Many cultures and faiths believe that a Divine Plan to save humankind from their misgivings exists. A great source of feelings of doubt, mistrust, and apprehension for the future of our species is related to our transgression upon Planet Earth, The Mother Goddess, the wonderful gift of The Garden from which all life emerges and evolves.
In this day and age, everywhere we look humans are doing more harm, mischief, and wrongdoing to the Earth on a daily basis, taking the fact that “We’re All Just Visiting” a bit too frivolously. We constantly emit more greenhouse gases and pour other pollutants into her air, water, and soil. We are reproducing at an exponentially alarming rate causing us to consume more and more of her non-renewable resources. We are rapidly deforesting the trees she bares to give us food and oxygen and remove the carbon dioxide that we omit. We are causing the massive displacement of species, including our own, while contaminating the food and water supplies that every living thing needs to survive.
Of course, How Will It All Change? The answer seems to always be the same. God or a Higher Power will send back the great untouchable ones that have come before us to magically wipe away all the harm that we’ve done and all we have to do is BELIEVE!!
Well, in the mortal words of the
Fantasy Literature Writer C.S. Lewis once said that “The command ‘Be ye perfect’ is not idealistic gas. Nor is it a command to do the impossible. He is going to make us into creatures that can obey that command. He said (in the Bible) that we were ‘gods’ … He will make the feeblest and filthiest of us into a god or goddess, a dazzling, radiant, immortal creature, pulsating all through with such energy and joy and wisdom and love as we cannot now imagine, a bright stainless mirror which reflects back to God perfectly … The process will be long and in parts very painful, but that is what we are in for. Nothing less.“
American Ethnobotanist Mystic Psychonaut Author Terence McKenna also said “You are a divine being. You matter, you count. You come from realms of unimaginable power and light, and you will return to those realms” and “Only psychos and shamans create their own reality.“
If they are right, then each of us has a revered purpose to help humanity reconcile with the only home we have in “this” universe.
So join us as we bring the fanciful but poignant prediction of C. S. Lewis and the ontological philosophy of Terence McKenna to life in a serendipitous comical journey to a metaphorical garden on Earth where only we can be the change we wish to see, led by a few “unlikely” Wookiefoot inspired Festival Junkies, mentored by an unorthodox pseudo-divine band of Harmony Park Security Guards, all of whom have “No Earthly Clue about what they are ‘Once Again’ here to do!”
What A Long Strange Trip it will be… AGAIN!
